Drive for external use on a DVR
Sharon A Wise, Amazon
14 November 2010
Summary: I am using this drive to increase the capacity of my Directv DVR, it has been performing quite well in that capacity. As usual the purchasing experience with Amazon was great. Using Amazon Prime allows me to chose the item I want and to have it delivered quickly.
Summary: Got this as an upgrade to my Tivo HD (following the instructions at tivocommunity's topic 370784#S5). Also from Amazon I purchased the Silverhill Tool Kit for Xbox and Xbox 360, 6 Piece to actually open up my TivoHD. This drive worked like a charm!
Summary: Bought this 1 month ago. I installed the drive as a second hard drive in my desktop computer. Installation was simple. I already had a spare SATA cable and spare power cable adapter. You will need these as they do not come with this "bare" drive. The packaging by Amazon was terrible.
Summary: If you're upgrading a TivoHD or Tivo Series3 (the TivoHD IS a Series3 Tivo by the way), you'll want to read this forum: [...] Apparently there's soft booting issues with this drive ONLY IF it was build AFTER NOVEMBER (check article for exact dates for your Tivo and particular drive).
Summary: This drive replaces the existing drives in the Humax FoxSat HDR devices. It is a straight swap in only requiring 12 screws to access the old one (4 in case,4 in drive housing and 4 holding the drive itself). Two multi plugs require disconnecting and re-connecting and that is all there is to it.
Summary: I've just put this drive into my sky hd box over the weekend and it's fabulous. Very, very quiet! Quieter than the relatively quiet 1TB Samsung spinpoint I had it the box until now. Definitely recommend for any Sky HD or other set top box.
Summary: Good straight swap for 320 gb hdd. Remove 3 cross head screws from back of sat box. slide back cover to revile hdd cady. un plug 4pin power lead, disconect data lead, remove 4 screws from caddy move a bit to right. unplug fan cable this is the fiddley one not much room. remove caddy and hdd.
Summary: Great value and sooo quiet in operation - highly recommended.Has transformed my Sky HD box. Caution if fitting to a Thomson box - you may need to replace the power supply sometime (known problem nothing to do with the WD Disk).
